Catherine, The North American Version, Unboxed

By Spencer . July 12, 2011 . 1:01pm

A package from Atlus with Catherine just arrived. Here’s a look at what you’ll get in two weeks if you get the regular edition of the game. The deluxe edition packs a pillowcase, t-shirt, and boxer shorts inside a pizza box.

Quotes about the characters and comments from the game’s creators have been translated. "I think there are different forms of presents, like giving what the recipient wants or a gift that reflects the personality of the giver," Katsura Hashino, producer and director, wrote. "Among those, there are presents where the person knows nothing about it and has no interest in it, but the present itself acts as a catalyst to open up a new point of view. We want to present you with a gift, a gift that will add to you repertoire of fun."


"If the game in your hands becomes a doorway to live for the works of the Persona Team we couldn’t be any happier."

    just give it to us straight: does it or does it not have reverse-side cover art?

    •!/SplashdownTiger STiger

      I wish to know this as well.

    • Spencer

      The cover art I have is not reversible. I can’t speak for the alternate cover art since I don’t have that, but the regular cover art is as pictured.

      Catherine does not have a Japanese voiceover option.

    There goes any hope for the other system’s box art on the inside.

    I always thought it interesting that the covers for each console version weren’t swapped, considering the personas associated with each the PS3 and 360.
